The APOC library adds support for loading and importing data from various data formats, including JSON, XML, and XLS.

  • Loading data implies it is streamed into memory and can only be used in conjunction with other statements that are part of the same query (CREATE, MATCH, etc).

  • Importing data, on the other hand, will also store the data to disk, which can then be consulted and manipulated later on using Cypher queries.
